NSW are hop­ing the magic touch of Winx’s cham­pion jockey Hugh Bow­man will rub off on the Blues on Wed­nes­day night.

Bow­man, a rugby league tragic, dropped into train­ing at Coogee and then had lunch with Brad Fit­tler.

“I played league when I was a kid at Dune­doo, un­til I was about 8,” Bow­man said. “Then I played rugby at school. I was half­back but a bit small, so I didn’t get much of a run.

“I only got home on Tues­day from

J Ja­pan and d so I rang ang ‘Joey’ ‘Joey’. I didn’t even know the boys were here and he said to come down and have a look. They look re­ally im­pres­sive.”
